3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ ZBF 2013.
Pours muddy pale yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has peach, pine, yeast, light grainy and some pomegranate. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel yet also kinda thin. Flavour is okay, malty, light caramel, piney and citrussy. A bit of apple. Medium bitterness. A tad boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki)
Maybe the previous hop-bomb has killed my palate, but this is relatively bland. Sticky hop aroma, a fair bit of alcohol and heady esters too. Nice orange, can be poured clear, but the yeast comes over early, so take care. Small tight white head. Simple Belgian blonde body, but with a huge emphasis on the hops. Bitingly bitter, but not in a way that is well integrated with the overall taste. Too much alcohol in the mouth too. Numbs the mouth, but it’s not an interesting or welcome sensation. Something watery about it too, oddly. Had to fight to finish the bottle, and didn’t like having to ingest so much alcohol in the process. This has cut my will to tick more beers today. Basically an unexceptional belgian ale with a pile of additional biting bitter hops. Meh. And too much alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half of a comparative test Duvel Tripel Hop vs. Hopjutters Triple Hop Hazy orange beer, under dense medium to good, just off-white head, recedihg. Toasted aroma, nettles or other garden weeds; dry UK hops after some time. Spicy flavours, lightly toasted, hints at diacetyl initially. Finish is very aromatic, the noble hops growing more powerful, hints of nectarine. Quite slick, medium bodied at least, creamy texture. Hopjutters, this is a good beer, even if the nose is a bit disappointing. But, as things stand today, if you aim at an American IPA, calling it triple hop, then this is too lame, to shy in what ought to be overbold citrussy, orangemarmalade-like hopbrew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle, BB 06/2014.
Dorée/orangée légèrement trouble, col épais blanc tirant vers le jaunâtre.
Arôme garde ce bouquet houblonné d’agrumes typique, le houblonnage étant assez léger.
Palais met bien le houblon en avant, alternant sur des notes fines tropicales; mangue avec une pointe d’épice sur la fin plus vers le côté noble. Fin de bouche affiche le côté malté avec une présence de bouche de grains, le tout étant sec et terreux.
